This is the June 2018 newsletter from the RespiTech Group at the Woolcock Institute of Medical Research.
This month we congratulate YY (Hui-Xin Ong) on the birth of her baby girl. YY gave birth to Zoey Chan on Sunday 10th June at 11.45. Both baby and mother are well and the RespiTech team wish YY and family all the best.
More good news for YY this month, in addition to a new family member, YY was awarded a grant as primary investigator. YY and Dr Steven Kao (Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Asbestos Disease Research Institute) were successfully awarded a Perpetual IMPACT award of $126,545 to research and develop non-invasive diagnostic tools for identifying lung cancer early. The grant is a key project of the Lung Cancer Research Network and will be supported by the Centre for Lung Cancer Research at the Woolcock.
Lastly, this month we welcomed Dr Stefano Giovagnoli from the University of Perugia who visited us to discuss ongoing collaborations and visiting students for 2018
